The area around the Strömstad Spa & Resort has activities to suit all ages and interests.
The waterfront is just 10 metres from the hotel. Admittedly, it's a little further to the golf course's first tee, but not much – about 45 metres in fact. The golf course stretches alongside the hotel like a billowing green velvet blanket. You just can't help but relax and feel great here. The golf season is unusually long here thanks to the warmth of the gulf stream, and the fantastic landscape means you can combine a round of golf with other adventures.
Strömstad is a very popular shopping town for both Swedes and Norwegians. Going shopping in Strömstad, with its many charming streets, shops and restaurants, is a great way to spend the day. You'll find unique little shops alongside art galleries and major chain stores. And when you're all shopped out, there are plenty of cafés and restaurants for you to rest your weary legs in.
Art and culture in Strömstad
Learn all about the area and its history at Strömstad museum. Strömstad's old town, Bukten ("the bay" in Swedish), with its wooden houses and cobbled streets, gives you an idea of what Strömstad would have looked like in the 19th century. Make your way up to the top of Korpeberget hill and enjoy magnificent views of the Strömstad archipelago. We recommend the Lokstallet gallery for contemporary art exhibitions.
Koster Islands in the Strömstad archipelago
The Koster Islands are the perfect destination for a genuine archipelago experience. The ferry to Koster departs from the Norra Hamnen quay in Strömstad several times a day throughout the year. Once out on the islands, you can enjoy the charming little harbours, fantastic views, grazing cattle and stunning archipelago scenery.
